Government Porn

leave a comment »

Good Morning America reports this morning that instead of getting us out of an economic crisis, the workers of the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) are watching porn instead. The report states that some senior employees of the SEC were viewing sites such as naughty.com for hours on government computers as the financial crisis was unwinding.

The investigation found that there were 31 serious offenders in the past two and a half years. 17 of these employees have salaries that range from 100,000 to 222,000 dollars a year.

One senior attorney at SEC spent as much as 8 hours a day watching porn at work and when he filled his work hard drive with porn, he continued to download it onto DVDs. Another SEC account  tried to access 1,800 porn sites within a two week period and had over 600 pornographic images found on his computer. While another tried to upload his own personal porn to site he has joined and another account tired to access over 16,000 sites in one month.

Good to know where our taxes are going.
